Welcome to Saint Cecilia Catholic Church

Easter 2023

Dear Parish Family,

Christ is risen, alleluia!

We have shared the Lenten desert journey of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving, and prepared for the Resurrection of Christ and our victory over sin and death. We now celebrate the Easter season, which lasts until Pentecost Sunday. During this time, we as a parish can make the most of this special time in the liturgical year by receiving Holy Communion frequently, celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation, reading Scripture, and being witnesses of the Gospel to those in our lives. Let us all share the hope that comes from the Risen Lord, today and every day.

In Christ,

Fr. Rene



Monday-Friday: 9:00 AM & *5:30 PM (*except holidays)

Saturday: 9:00 AM & 5:00 PM (Vigil)

Sunday: 7:30 AM, 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM



            On behalf of those throughout the Archdiocese who benefit from the Annual Appeal, thank you.

 This year, the Archdiocese of San Francisco needs to raise a total of $6.4 million for the 2023 Archdiocesan Annual Appeal. St. Cecilia’s obligation for 2023 is $135,985. We have received $36,536 as of May 16, 2023. Please help us do our part by your support for St. Cecilia Parish this year. Annual Appeal envelopes are in the pews and vestibule of the church. You may place your donation in the donation boxes located in the church or leave them at the Rectory Office. Don’t forget to put “2023 Annual Appeal” or “2023 AAA” on the memo line if donating by check.

Thank you for helping us achieve our parish responsibility.

The Parish offers a monthly Bible Sharing group. The group meets on the first Wednesday evenings of the month at 7:30 PM and will be led by Terence Leung and Fr. Paul Arnoult.  It is a one-hour meeting via Zoom and/or phone call. Prior to each meeting, we will select a scripture passage from an upcoming Sunday liturgy. During the meeting, we read the passage and share perspectives, insights, and feelings. Participants will be emailed a Zoom link and a dial-in phone number before each meeting. All parishioners are welcome to join. To register for this class or for more information, please contact Terence at or call the Parish Office and leave a message for Fr. Paul.
